We Aren’t Africa; Or Are We?

We aren’t Africa, in western NSW, that’s obvious, but many of the challenges we face could be argued to be similar. ¬†Hunger is not from lack of food, but from the wrong kind. Land degradation is from over farming and ill considered land use. Drought is consistent and I think is a reaping of what we have been sowing internally for generations – scarcity, fear and doubt.

Our communities resilience is waning with disconnection and external forces and a struggling sense of purpose. On the outside we are miles apart; on the inside, we are all still human – and our environment reflects our inner path.

Food is a common thread for us; it weaves magic among us if we allow it.

I found this incredible story of the Chikukwa Permaculture Project in Zimbabwe really amazing and am grateful for the opportunity to share it. I have purchased the video, so we can show it at The Hungry Spirit at Lightning Ridge in the coming weeks.

Thanks to Permaculture News for sharing this incredible story  http://permaculturenews.org/2013/08/15/the-chikukwa-permaculture-project-zimbabwe-the-full-story/
